Weekend Moments: Back in Montreal Again


This weekend was my mother's 50th birthday, and I hosted a little cocktail party for her at my apartment... which meant a lot of cooking and preparing, but I love that kind of stuff ; )

 I wore my new polka dot tights, which make me smile every time I look at them.

I baked tons and tons of macarons for the party and they were gone within minutes of putting them out.
 everyone said they looked like mini chocolate hamburgers
... can't argue with that I guess!

I bought these little green pom pom flowers at the farmer's market...
aren't they cute?!

I got to play around with my uncle's vintage Diana camera, and now I really want one!

On Sunday morning we met friends at Rumi (a Middle Eastern restaurant in Montreal) for a very different kind of brunch... it was delicious actually.

And then we went to the market to pick out our Christmas tree. Finally! I've been waiting to get it all month (I know, it's ridiculous!) but my husband insisted on waiting until December.  
(Because last year we got it so early it was practically dead my Christmas)
 But today he caved and agreed since it was almost December 1st.... and I was like a kid in a candy shop! And now to start decorating it....
I hope you had a lovely weekend too.

  10. Your cookies look like fancy bakery cookies! I am with you - I always want Christmas up as soon as possible - because we are doing the Nutcracker I am not able to get all the decorations up as soon as I would like...Nutcracker is this weekend and then I will have the time to do my decorations! Then I never want to take them down...I have been known to have various Christmas items still around in February - crazy I know!
